This vintage travel poster was published for the French airline TAI (Compagnie de Transport Aeriens Intercontinentaux) which was established in association with the Messageries Maritime Shipping Company in 1946. The airline added the destinations of Australia and New Caledonia to its list in 1956, employing Douglas DC-6 aircrafts, which were one of the first planes to fly a regularly scheduled around-the-world route. New Caledonia, referred to in the poster as the Island of Light and the France of the Pacific, is a French island archipelago in the southwest Pacific region of Melanesia.

What Does 'Original' Mean?
We only deal in original vintage posters, never reproductions. This means that every poster is from the original print run, in the year listed in the description. Everything we sell comes with an individually signed certificate of authenticity, which we fully guarantee.
If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.
Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
